This is a nicely made version of the Marie Belloc Lowndes novel The Lodger, which first came to the screen in the Hitchcock silent The Lodger: A Story of the London Fog, though my favorite remains 1944's The Lodger. The main cast does well, aside from lacking British accents. Frances Bavier, who I remember as Aunt Bee on The Andy Griffith Show deserves special mention as the suspicious landlady. The London street sets are great. They give a good feel to the movie. I don't recall ever seeing London bobbies on horseback in a movie before, but it seems plausible.

I downloaded the 1.1GB MPEG2 file. It played perfectly in the VLC movie player. Video and audio quality were fine.

Jack Palance is very good and outshines most of the other actors. A better supporting cast would make this movie great but it's mostly dancing girls (and they're fun to watch!) and innuendos about the murderous Ripper.

This film made Mr. Palance a household name in films after his protrayal in Panic in The Streets
